Share this Article

3D printing technologies are advancing in both capabilities and profile around the world, and lately Asia has been in the spotlight. One week from today, Inside 3D Printing Seoul will kick off in South Korea as the 2017 event runs June 28-30. This represents the fourth annual event in the Republic of Korea as 3D printing gets ready to again rock the RoK, focusing on the new era of digital manufacturing. In 2016, Inside 3D Printing Seoul showcased some big advances in technology, and this year the show itself promises a bigger scale.

Rising Media is hosting the event at KINTEX, as more than 9,000 visitors hailing from 25 nations are expected to join this meeting of the minds, alongside 73 exhibitors and sponsors in 210 booths. With such an anticipated turnout, it may seem difficult to navigate — but we’ve been keeping an eye on some of the expected highlights. Many names and companies will be familiar to those keeping up with additive manufacturing industry news, ready to share knowledge, strategies, and products throughout the course of the busy few days in Seoul.

Keynote speakers include:

  • Omer Krieger, President, Stratasys APAC & Japan
  • Terry Wohlers, Principal Consultant, Wohlers Associates
  • Kevin McAlea, Executive Vice President, 3D Systems
  • Tyler Benster, General Partner, Asimov Ventures

Additional speakers on the agenda include industry experts from Arcam, Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, EOS, Stratasys, and more, sharing insights into such areas as aerospace, automotive, business, investments, manufacturing, and metal technologies and applications.

Among the technologies to be shown on-site are:

  • 3D printers
  • 3D printing materials
  • 3D scanners
  • CNC milling machines
  • CAD/CAM/CAE software; metrology; reverse engineering; post-processing
  • 3D printed products

Global companies will exhibit alongside a good deal of startups and well-known Korean exhibitors; some companies to be present next week include:

  • 3D Systems
  • Aurora Labs
  • DWS
  • EOS
  • German RepRap
  • MakerBot
  • Prodways
  • XYZprinting

Experiences for visitors include real-life applications and demonstrations; among the offerings is the opportunity to have your feet 3D scanned and order 3D printed shoes custom made to your exact size. These shoes, from All About Wear, arrive in 24 hours, showing the expedience and customization offered by 3D technologies.
